A huge crowd gathered and celebrated what our lovely town had been craving for for so long, a spot with identity and a cool vibe. Long live the lane!
Live music by local bands was playing all afternoon, the best food trucks were all there and our favourite Duck Island Ice Cream even had a table with a couple of flavours. Tables, chairs and sofas were handily placed for everyone to sit and enjoy the atmosphere, felt pens and crayons were placed at every table for children and children at heart to doodle away on the brown paper covered surfaces.
It was so nice to see a community come together, everyone was happy and cheerful. I have said it times and times again but I am really proud of the people in my city, putting themselves out there, creating something vibrant and unique, and nurturing a sense of belonging, culture and togetherness through their businesses.
Of course I had to snap a couple of images from Grey Gardens, a favourite of ours, I had already shared about this place on Instagram.
There were so many people I could not take pictures of everything and every shop but The Framing House has now joined the Lovegrove Lane family. They offer custom framing solutions along with some handcrafted goods, George Sand Studio being one of them, a very clever lady whom I love to follow on Instagram and creates the most divine ceramics pieces.
So there, Lovegrove Lane everyone, come down and enjoy the buzz!
